Steptember is a way to help people with cerebral palsy, and get fit.

Western Sydney Local Health District is participating in an event called Steptember – and by being part of it you can get fit and help others.

Your challenge is to take 10,000 steps a day for 28 days straight, starting on Monday, September 4.

You join in teams of four, and ask your family and friends to sponsor you for your efforts. All money raised goes towards helping children and adults living with cerebral palsy – many of whom will never be able to take a single step without assistance.

The average person only takes 3000-5000 steps a day. It might sound like a lot, but its way under the recommended 10,000 steps we all need to take to lead healthy lives.

Steptember is the perfect opportunity to get out from behind your desk and make a positive change – with the added benefit of helping a good cause.

Registration normally costs $25 per person – and WSLHD hasnegotiated free participation for all our employees, so it won’t cost you a cent.

Organise a team of four colleagues and nominate one ‘team captain’. Your captain then heads to the registration page.

Make sure you register under our organisation: NSW Health – Western Sydney Local Health District and enter the free code: WSLHD2017 so that your rego costs are covered.

Steptember is part of the WSLHD Employee Wellbeing program, which has already seen the launch of Fitness Passport and the inaugural WSLHD Wellbeing Festival.
